Not really surprising, but here's (http://www.rockymountainnews.com/news/2008/aug/07/ringolsby-rockies-odowd-has-a-bit-of-flexibility/) a morsel:


Speculation around the Nationals is that vice president of baseball operations Mike Rizzo is positioned to replace Jim Bowden as general manager.

Maybe so, but I've been told Leatherpants is basically Stan Kasten's bullet proof vest while the franchise rebuilds. This theory is that while they rebuild the farm system and team with young players, the fact that the team stinks at the ML level can be blamed on Jimbo rather than those higher than him.

Of course, he may have worn out his welcome in D.C. in any event.

I suppose the Dominican bonus skimming scandal isn't helping either.

Jimbo and scandal. Those two words just seem to go together well.

That's if they rebuild the farm system with Jimbo at the helm.

Rizzo better watch his back or he may be the one on the unemployment line, not JimBo.

Are you insinuating that JimBow is a sneaky, lying, cheating backstabbing mole?

Not insinuating anything of the sort. I'm stating it outright.

I'm surprised Jimbo made it this long...

If Bowden's girlfriend could take him out, then why not Rizzo? ;)
